Walsh Logistics Completes Activation of Alaska Renovated Healthcare Facility

ANCHORAGE, AK — The current needs and demands of the healthcare industry are expanding year after year. A growing population and advancing technologies require many healthcare organizations to evolve and transform their facilities to meet the needs of their staff and patients. Over the past six months, Walsh Logistics, the activation provider within Chicago-based Walsh Construction, has played a role in the planning and activation of healthcare facility renovations and expansions in the United States and Canada.

Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, expanded multiple spaces and services to meet Department of Defense Space Planning Criteria. Walsh Construction led the efforts to construct two operating rooms (OR), Sterile Processing Department/Central Sterile Supply (SPD/CSS) areas and an MRI suite.

Walsh Logistics was responsible for managing the full turnkey Initial Outfitting & Transition services, including planning, procurement and installation of all new FF&E as well as the transition planning and physical relocation services of all staff on this multi-phased project. Walsh Logistics also purchased and installed a new 1.5T MRI and removed and re-installed the existing 3T MRI into the new space.

In addition to purchasing and installing two complete ORs and CSS areas, Walsh Logistics managed and trained the hospital staff in their new space, allowing hospital employees and caretakers to perform their responsibilities at maximum efficiency on day one of the expansion’s opening.

Walsh Logistics provides services and support tailored to health, science and education projects.

“Our suite of services includes the planning, design, procurement and installation of furniture, furnishings and equipment that are necessary to operate a facility,” said Drew Peterson, Program Manager. “Our team integrates with our customers’ staff to facilitate informed decisions into a streamlined planning and delivery process.”
